Soba BabyNova 1000 washing machine problem

This machine is on our new to us boat. It has drain problems. At first it would not cycle into the drain mode all the time. Now it goes into the mode but makes a growling sound and does not drain.

This is what I've done:
-replaced the drain pump, drain pump hose to the bottom of the drum, small hose that goes from this dran pump hose up to a connection on top of the unit, made sure all the drain lines are clear (including the thruhull). Unit will not drain to an empty buck right now.

Help!!

Thanks,
Travis

Yours is installed on a boat and you are right this is a sailers forum. However I would try some RV or similar forums where you have probably more users of this model. Personally I have never seen a mention of this model on this forum.

Just solved this problem. The machine is a 220 50hz and we were trying to run it on a 60hz line. The drain pump did not like that!

Good detective work.

You’ll find LOTS of discussions about the 50/60 Hz issue here on Cruisers Forum. There should be some helpful ideas specific to dealing with it on boats. Good luck, I have to admit, I found some of the issues pretty alarming, enough so I was very glad I’d never face the problem myself.

The Baby Nova's are great machines - glad you sorted the problem.

Towing over the side for a while in a mesh bag has always worked for me.

Hello,
We have a Babynova since 10 years.
We had that issue with 60Hz shore power in some countries (Panama, Cuba, Colombia). Need to run it with 220V/50Hz genset.
